New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of playing 'garbage politics' in Delhi.
Addressing a press conference, Aam Aadmi Party leader Dilip Pandey alleged that only one private company has been awarded the contract for cleaning garbage at Kasturba Hospital and Hindu Rao Hospital.
No open tender procedure was followed for awarding the contract, added Pandey.
The AAP leader further mentioned that the company, which has been working at Kasturba Hospital, gets paid around Rs 8 lakh every month for the job. This means, around Rs 70 crore has been paid to the company till date, said Pandey.
Hindu Rao Hospital pays around Rs 10-10.25 lakhs every month to the company.
Recalling that the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government in Delhi has slapped Rs 700 crore fine on five private hospitals for denying free treatment to poor patients, Pandey called it as the AAP's pro-people governance model. Ridiculing the MCD, the AAP leader said the BJP believes in pro-corrupt governance model.
